Weelkes: Sacred Choral Music

Thomas Weelkes is remembered as one of the outstanding English composers of the seventeenth century. This survey of his services, verse anthems and sacred madrigals features first recordings of several works in new reconstructions by scholar Peter James. Benjamin Nicholas’s Tewkesbury choir delivers telling performances which passionately convey the range, imagination and technical accomplishment of Weelkes’ settings.
